Rustic Amish Vanity for Unique Bathroom Look
The downside to particleboard is that it can be sensitive to moisture and is more prone to coming apart at stress points — where hardware is screwed in, for instance. Ask about how the veneer will hold up with small amounts of water (glasses not completely dried, for instance) or something more serious, like a spill that sits for a while. Some cabinet manufacturers regularly have the particleboard they use tested for performance, so ask if there are different grades of material from which to select, and what you can expect in terms of durability. MDF is also less expensive than plywood; it has a more uniform surface than particleboard.
